I have a Intel board 800Fsb P4 2.4Ghz processor Windows xp geforce 4 ti4200 128MB video card DDR 400 512MB of Duel Channel Ram. I recently got a virus that came up as it was adaware/spyware and spyfalcon kept trying to install. It completly messed my system up. I ran spybot and cleared everything out that it found. Ran norton and cleaned all that up. The icon on the toolbar went away saying I had a virus but my IE homepage was something saying I had a virus that someone could control my c drive and some stuff on it. Normally I pay attention to this stuff but I figured I cleaned it all out and that page was there from when I had first got it. I changed my homepage and everything seemed fine. The next day I booted up my computer and I loged in fine but my desktop was strage looking all the icons look normal but the text below them where black and I couldnt read them. I opend my computer and all text below the folders were black and couldnt see them. I tried going to properties and the thing is black so I cant see what is on it. Figured id better format my c: drive ok. So I log out run a windows 98 startup disk so I can get to dos (I couldnt run format from XP I couldnt see any text in xp)I get to dos fine get ready to format and it says cant format this drive and I check and its not finding my c: drive it acks as if my c drive is my floppy. I restart get a message to insert the startup disk or something witch no disk works. After about 20 minutes of trying the computer wont boot. I start it up the floppy light stays on the hdd light stays on and I have power to everything but the monitor doesnt click on. I pulled all the cards the cd drives the hdd and the floppy and tried to boot up with just the board and same thing happens. All fans are running fine I tried putting a different hdd in but I get the same thing. I think that my motherboard is gone I tired to flash bios nothing works. I have had these parts for about 3 years. I run my computer all day round I turn it off about once ever week or so for a few minutes. I changed my battery on the board so I am out of ideas. Any help would be great.
